Welcome to RootsChat! ;D
Seems I am repeating what others have said, but anyway . . . .

On the black bar, above, you will see Home, Forum, Help, Search, . . . .

Click on Search, and enter the word you are looking for.


If it's a surname you are looking for, try Surname Interests, which can be found at the bottom of any RootsChat page, underneath "Your Tools".
Use Quick Search ;D

This will give you a list of RC'ers who have an interest in that surname.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)
